COVER ART FOR JENNIFER HUDSON'S SOPOMORE CD

Jennifer Hudson sings "it's a new dawn, a new day and I'm feeling good" in a Weight Watchers ad as she shows off a figure that's 80 lbs. lighter than her pre-baby weight.  (Hudson has an 18-month-old son, David II,  with her soon-to-be husband David Otunga).

She has been owning red carpets lately with her curvy new bod, which for some reason we see less of on her on her sophomore CD cover, "I Remember Me."

Meanwhile, she and her fiance are planning to wed some time this year.
